I downloaded a folder of SKM files recently and perhaps for the first time I wonder why we have to use SKM as an intermediary in SketchUp. What does SKM offer? It seems to be in the way.
The files in this folder are useless until I get its folder (or make a new folder) into the Application Support folder and restart SketchUp, whereas any other image file can be dropped directly. Is there another (good) method to get one SKM into your model.
If you drag an skm into your window it shows “+” sign but nothing happens. I look at my Finder window and it is way better to use than the SketchUP Materials windows.
I’d much rather work with a finder window of my textures than the SketchUp Materials window.
So why do we have SKM at all?
